Rangers considering Gascoigne move

Rangers
Goalkeeper Andy Firth says the decision to join Rangers was the easiest of his career after penning an 18-month deal at Ibrox.

Rangers could be set to offer Paul Gascoigne's nephew Cameron a contract to join the Scottish Premiership outfit.

Gascoigne has been a free agent since leaving Newcastle’s academy during the summer and he spent some time on trial at Rangers earlier this month, scoring for the club’s development team as they beat Partick Thistle 3-0.

The 18-year-old is now expected to return to Ibrox for a second trial spell and it appears the Gers are seriously considering offering him a contract, although clubs in the English Football League are also said to be interested.

If the teenager were to move to Rangers then he would be following in the footsteps of his illustrious uncle, with Paul Gascoigne having spent three successful years with the Glasgow giants during the 1990s, scoring 30 goals in 74 league appearances for the club.

The former England international also won four major honours during his time at Ibrox before he moved on to Middlesbrough in 1998, and he is still remembered fondly by the club’s supporters.

If Cameron Gascoigne were to join Rangers then he should continue working with the club’s development team, as it seems unlikely at this stage he will be ready to challenge the likes of Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe for a place in Steven Gerrard’s first team.

The youngster could be someone to look out for in the future and he will certainly be an eye-catching name on any team-sheet.
